The Prime Minister of Buganda, Owek. Charles Peter Mayiga is furious about the circulating rumours that he collaborated in the arrest of blogger Fred Lumbuye.
Several sympathizers of the gossip vendor, Fred Lumbuye accused the Kattikiro of collaborating with the government of Uganda to arrest Fred.
According to them, Mayiga had been acting out of revenge since Fred Lumbuye has been airing bad comments about him and how he is an enemy to Buganda.
Fred Lumbuye had, prior to his arrest claimed that Mayiga is collaborating with the Ugandan government to sell off Buganda kingdom.
He claimed that President Museveni is using Mayiga to destabilize Buganda by collaborating with killers to murder prominent Buganda chiefs. He also says Charles poisoned the Kabaka to make him sick.
*Charles Mayiga Responds.*
The Prime Minister, on hearing these allegations fled to Mengo and addressed journalists, denying any involvement in Fred Limbuye’s arrest.
He urged people to disregard the rumours while maintaining that he is always busy working for the good of Buganda Kingdom and the Kabaka.
“I do not listen to that gentleman. I recently heard people sympathising with me about his attacks. I am ever busy with other kingdom duties so I don’t have time for social media.” he said.
